So, I'm pretty new to this community. I really enjoy that collectors have a place to come together and share all of their coveted items. I didn't realize one can make blog posts on this platform, so here's my first post. This is going to go through all of the things I've acquired over the past few days as I've been rapidly adding to my collection. I've been collecting Sailor Moon RPG toys since I was a kid, and even though I haven't acquired every toy out there I feel like I have acquired a great deal of them over the years. I also recently started getting into figure collecting from different areas of pop culture. I guess one could say I've expanded my hobby of collecting throughout this elongated period of time away from normalcy.

I started getting into the PROPLICA line by Bandai and Tamashii Nations around 2015 when the Moon Stick came out. I already own two previous versions of this wand, (the original '90s version by Irwin Toys and the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon version from the live action series Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. That version was called the "Moonlight Stick.") so at first I was apprehensive about owning a third version but that year my boyfriend surprised me with it on my birthday. After that I knew that I needed the rest. I've been pretty horrible when it comes to pre-orders so I ended up missing out on the future releases. However, thanks to generous sellers on Facebook Groups, I've been able to acquire most of them and I hope to receive them all soon. ^_^

Here are a few items I've gotten over the past few days to add to my collection:

The Figuarts Zero version of Sailor Venus from Sailor Moon Crystal

I remember doing a group pre-order with my friends when they came out with the first Figuarts Zero figure from Sailor Moon Crystal of Sailor Moon, and I remember seeing both this one and Sailor Mars at my local comic book shop. I could only afford one at the time since they were a bit expensive when they first came out (and now they're even worse). I bought Sailor Mars a couple of years ago and I was very surprised when I was told that Sailor Venus was still in stock at the store. While it was the most money I've ever spent on a figure I was really grateful that I was able to purchase it after so many years of it sitting at the store. All of the Figuarts Zero figures from Sailor Moon Crystal are very beautifully designed and it looks great next to my figures of Sailor Moon and Sailor Mars.

Pink Moon Stick PROPLICA

This PROPLICA is now the second item I own in the line. I was searching for the rest of the items to see how high they would be priced now, but I was able to pick this up at a GameStop location 28 minutes away from me for about $36.00 with their Memorial Day sale. I couldn't allow myself to miss out on another PROPLICA especially at this price. I have the original '90s toy that's missing the battery compartment backing. Here's a side-by-side comparison.https://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/05/29/2444802.jpeghttps://static.myfigurecollection.net/upload/pictures/2020/05/29/2444803.jpeg

I really like how sleek the PROPLICA is compared to the toy. The colors are so much more vivid. I like that the PROPLICA items have the character voices included. They really feel like more of a collectors piece than the toys do, although the toys will always hold a special place in my heart since I've had them for so long.

PROPLICA Spiral Heart Moon Rod and the Heart Moon Brooch from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon

My friend was kind enough to sell these to me for less than what she paid for them. I remember always staring at this brooch at a collectibles store near me that specialized in pop culture and anime goods. The owner is a big Sailor Moon fan and had so much cool stuff at her store. Her store still runs online and on eBay. I've attached links if anyone wants to check out her shop! I was really apprehensive on getting the Spiral Heart Moon Rod because I am so attached to the original '90s version. It was the first Sailor Moon wand I ever owned. I watched someone's unboxing video of the PROPLICA and I thought it was really cool. All of the PROPLICA items have different modes you can play with, and the modes on this one are so reminiscent of the Sailor Moon S season, which is my favorite season of the anime. If you look at the side-by-side photo you can truly see that the PROPLICA is a true collectors piece.

PROPLICA Chibi Moon Compact

This item just came today after it was featured as a limited time deal on Amazon. I never owned the original version so I'm really excited to own the PROPLICA version. This version includes character voice options as well as conversation mode between Chibi-Usa and Pegasus. They have such a sweet relationship in the anime so this feature of the PROPLICA was super cute to see included in the options.

Sailor Mars and Sailor Venus Girls Memories Figures from Banpresto

These two figures also just came today from Lunar Toy Store! They're an anime shop based in Queens, NY. I live 30 minutes away from New York City, so after it's safe to shop in stores personally again I can't wait to make a visit to this shop. Even via e-mail the staff is super helpful and friendly, and even took note of a few items I was still looking for in case they ever come back around in the future. While I really enjoy the Figuarts Zero line from Sailor Moon Crystal I don't have any figures from the original anime that I didn't really play with as a kid that aren't broken except for the little mini ones that Irwin Toys came out with in the '90s, so I really enjoy the Girls Memories figures as they're reminiscent of the original anime character designs. I think Banpresto did a really nice job with these figures.

Stay tuned for more magical girl loot! ^-^

Jess-chanHace 1 mes#78413570Image Anime is still open, they relocated and the store is maybe a teeny bit bigger than the other location. Went there this past November but nothing really tickled my fancy even though I really wanted to buy something lolkiisaraHace 1 mes#78415269Ahhhh really?! That’s awesome! I looked them up on Google the other day because I hadn’t been there in a number of years, and it said permanently closed so I was a little bummed. I’m glad to know they just moved. ^.^

kiisaraHace 1 mes#78412206I also want to go there! I've heard of it but I've never been in there. The only place I have been to was Image Anime back when it was a storefront but I guess it's all online now.

The one in NYC is really great - but it is the only one I've been to - but, I like looking at their figure prices and laughing because some of them are just really really ridiculous.
I sometimes manage to find good art books from them though. Got the konosuba one from them, well worth the upcharge

Yeah, some of their prices can be pretty up there.

Plus the blush one the middle thing pops out and has some storage space underneath. Hide valuables LOL
The store is nice though. The guy said its more a store front because customers wanted to come in and see figures and they don't do that much business as far as selling goes.
Between that and Kinokuniya I love having figure stores I can go to just to see pretty things haha

Hahahaha, ooh that's a cool feature. It has a double purpose. xD
I miss the Kinokuniya online store it would be so helpful right now. ;~; They really picked the wrong time to do renovations on the website. I have a mini one by me in NJ but I love the one in NYC!

I really like the chalice! I have the makeup chalice with the blush in it as well and I remember people complaining about the proplica chalice being small but its a nice size to me.
The star wand that makes noise and works with the cards. I wish I had gotten the clear card one that didn't make noise but felt it was expensive at the time but damn its beautiful.
Also, LTS is a nice size but I wouldn't call it huge? I mean I guess it depends on what you think is huge but they have a lot on display. Some time ago I was able to find Syaoran nendoroid in their store for retail price so sometimes they have good finds.

Ah the makeup one looks so cute! I can't wait for the PROPLICA to get here. I have that same set! I don't know where the rest of the set went but the wand is still in tact, haha. Oh, really? Haha, the photos I guess just make the place look larger. xD
